Pontiac Classic CarsThere are two types of car collectors. One collects cars for the financial investment. The other collects cars for the emotional attachment. The financial collector does research, follows trends, and buys wisely. The emotional collector does not worry about the financial value of the car; the car’s value is in the feeling it provides, usually in the form of a powerful family memory or a joyful driving experience.
